We stayed here recently in the 'Ted' room. Our room was on the top floor so we had to contend with sloping ceilings. If you stay in this room bring a crash helmet! Sorry to say the room itself and the furniture was a big disappointment. One item of furniture in the bathroom was ready for the skip! Why do the owners not see these things? The saving grace for the Greyhound were the staff both who were helpful and friendly. When we came to pay the bill the staff acknowledged our issues and amended our bill accordingly. Do take the time to stroll round the village which is really pretty.
I have eaten and stayed here on numerous occasions since 2004, We went for dinner recently. The pub still looks great from the outside. However inside is deteriorating eg Gents has paint peeling off the walls. The food was generally poor. Tiny piece of bland pate with the trimmings £8.25. Soup good. Beef curry at £15 had 3 cubes of beef in it!!! I suspect the fish and chips was off of a catering lorry or cash and carry as staff were to and fro to kitchen through pub with catering packs of burgers etc. When we told one of the staff about the curry she said she would tell the chef off ha ha! Bill arrived full charge. After talking to two staff £4 was taken off. Much better places in surrounding area, as we found out. Shall not be returning
Just lovely. Beautiful countryside, beautiful village, beautiful pub, great food, comfortable room and great service. And a cracking breakfast with EXCELLENT coffee. I particularly liked how quiet the village is; no traffic at all and no traffic noise. We could hear the birds singing! As I said, lovely.
Just home from a three night stay in this lovely, beautifully located pub with great accommodation in separate building overlooking the pretty garden and hills beyond. Food was great, interesting wine list and local beers - and the breakfast was a joy. All of the staff were friendly, helpful, and – successfully – made every effort to make our stay as enjoyable as it could be (including giving us complementary jars of their delicious fruit compote to take home!) Great for dog owners, it’s not just dog-friendly but also dog-welcoming.
We were driving along the Dorchester to Yeovil Road, saw the brown sign on the roadside and called in for lunch on the off chance. They were fully booked but nevertheless went out of their way to bring extra furniture out for the three of us. We enjoyed a lovely and very reasonable lunch. Highly recommended. Worth coming off the A37 for a beautiful pub in a lovely little Dorset village with a great food menu and extremely hospitable staff.
